Creamy Feta Dip | Advanced SCD, Gluten-Free


With the holidays right around the corner, I am starting to plan our meals and appetizers. This year, I am looking for simple and easy dishes that are packed with flavor and quality ingredients. Since this recipe includes feta, I do not recommend this for anyone who is experiencing symptoms of irritable bowel disease. Feta is an advanced food and should only be consumed after six strict months of following the SCD diet and it should only be consumed in small amounts and in moderation.

Health Benefits of Feta Cheese
+ Feta cheese is a good source of calcium, phosphorus and protein, all of which have been proven to promote bone health.
+ Feta cheese contains friendly bacteria that have been shown to promote immune and intestinal health, in addition to their anti-inflammatory effects.
+ Feta cheese contains good amounts of CLA (Conjugated linoleic acid ), which may improve body composition and help prevent diabetes and cancer.

Advanced SCD, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Sugar-Free
yield: about 2 cups

12 ounces feta cheese
1 cup homemade yogurt
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
